The cars appear to have Howe Truss sideframes. That would rule out
any PRR class of stock cars from that era.

Subject: [STMFC] Trying to determine ownership of stock cars found in
Warsaw, IN

I am trying to identify the the owning railroad and class of stock cars
appearing in Warsaw, IN in this M. D. McCarter photo at
<http://replica.palni.edu/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/winona&CISOPTR
=371&CISOBOX=1&REC=7>, with a plan of modeling these in S scale. The
photo would have been taken between 8/45 and late 1951 (time frame of
the Winona Railroad GE 44 tonner). The Winona only had refrigerator
cars, so these weren't their cars. The PRR and Big Four were in the
immediate vicinity. Could these be PRR stock cars?
